Description

本発明は、パチンコ機などの遊技機に関する。   The present invention relates to a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine.
近年の遊技機、特にパチンコ遊技機では、遊技盤のほぼ中央に表示装置やセンターケースを備え、例えば表示装置によりいわゆる変動表示ゲーム(特図と呼ばれる図柄が例えばスクロールして変動表示された後に停止して図柄が確定し、確定した図柄によっては大当りとなるゲーム)を行い、これにより遊技の興趣を高めるように構成されている。この表示装置には、表示情報量が多く高度な画像表示を行うことができるマトリックス型の液晶ディスプレイを主として使用している。
また、近年の表示装置は、特許文献1に見られるように、より多彩な演出を行って演出効果を高めるために、画像表示部が大型化する傾向にあり、この大型化した画像表示部を有する表示装置を遊技領域に備える遊技機が提案されている。
In recent gaming machines, especially pachinko machines, a display device and a center case are provided in the approximate center of the game board. For example, a so-called variable display game (such as a special figure is scrolled and displayed in a scrollable manner on the display device) The design is determined, and a game that is a big hit depending on the determined design) is performed, thereby enhancing the interest of the game. The display device mainly uses a matrix type liquid crystal display that can display a large amount of information and perform advanced image display.

特開平7−250954号公報Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 7-250954
しかしながら、遊技盤は、遊技球の流れに変化を持たせる障害釘を打ち付ける必要があるなどの理由から、木製の板部材で構成されるのが一般的であり、例えば表示装置の画像表示部が大型化してセンターケースも大型化すると、この画像表示部を前面に望ませかつセンターケースを装着するために遊技盤に形成される開口部の面積が拡大されて遊技盤自体の強度が低下してしまうという問題が発生する。特に、木製の板部材で構成されているために、大きな開口部を形成し、外周部分を完全に切り欠いてしまうと、歪みや捻れを生じてしまう問題がある。なお、上記開口部の面積が拡大されなくても、表示装置やセンターケースの配置を外周側に偏らせた場合、上記開口部が前面から見て切り欠きの形状になると、同様に強度低下や歪み等が発生する問題がある。逆に言えば、従来ではこのような問題から、外周部分を完全に切り欠いてしまうまで、上記開口部を拡大したり、上記開口部を中心から外周側に偏らせたりすることができず、上記開口部の大きさや配置の自由度に限界があった。
そこで本発明は、遊技盤の強度が低下することや、遊技盤に歪みや捻れが生じることを防止しつつ、遊技盤の開口部の大型化や配置の自由度向上が従来の限界を超えて実現できる遊技機を提供することを目的とする。
However, the game board is generally made of a wooden plate member because it is necessary to hit a nail that changes the flow of the game ball. For example, the image display unit of the display device has an image display unit. If the size of the center case is increased, the image display unit is desired on the front side, and the area of the opening formed in the game board is increased to attach the center case, so that the strength of the game board itself decreases. Problem occurs. In particular, since it is made of a wooden plate member, if a large opening is formed and the outer peripheral portion is notched completely, there is a problem that distortion or twisting occurs. Even if the area of the opening is not enlarged, when the display device or the center case is biased toward the outer periphery, if the opening has a notch shape when viewed from the front, the strength is similarly reduced. There is a problem that distortion or the like occurs. Conversely, conventionally, from such a problem, until the outer peripheral portion is completely cut out, the opening cannot be enlarged or the opening cannot be biased from the center to the outer peripheral side, There was a limit to the size of the opening and the degree of freedom in arrangement .
Therefore, the present invention prevents the strength of the game board from being lowered and the game board from being distorted or twisted, while increasing the size of the opening of the game board and improving the degree of freedom in arrangement exceed the conventional limits. It shall be the object of the present invention to provide a game machine that can be realized.

また、変動入賞装置12は、後述する大当りになったことを条件として開放される大入賞口12aを有する。
Although the entire display device is not shown, the display device is attached to the back side of the game board 1.
The display device can display identification information such as numbers and characters (hereinafter, sometimes referred to as a special figure), and can display a plurality of special figures. For example, special charts are displayed in three vertical columns on the left, center, and right, and special figures consisting of numbers, letters, etc. in each column are displayed in a stopped state (stop display), or in a fluctuating state (for example, vertically) Display in a scrolling state) (that is, a variable display). In addition, on the image display unit 10 of the display device, an image for presentation such as a background image or a character image or an information notification image can be displayed separately from the special figure.
Further, the variable winning device 12 has a big prize opening 12a that is opened on condition that a big hit, which will be described later, is reached.
また、始動入賞口11は、後述するように特図の変動表示の開始条件を成立させる入賞口であり、入賞口としての開口部分を開閉する開閉部材11aを有する。この場合、始動入賞口11は、センターケース30の中央部下方に配置されている。
センターケース30は、遊技盤1に前面側から取り付けられる部材であり、この場合、画像表示部10の大型化に伴って大型化されており、画像表示部10とともに前面から見て遊技盤の右端に偏って配置されている。このため、遊技領域3として有効な部分は、主にこのセンターケース30の中心から左側に偏っていて、センターケース30の右側には遊技球が流れない構成となっている。なお、これに限らず、センターケース30の右側に流路を形成して遊技球が流れる構成にしてもよい。
The start winning opening 11 is a winning opening that establishes the start condition of the variable display of the special figure as will be described later, and has an opening / closing member 11a that opens and closes an opening portion as the winning opening. In this case, the start winning opening 11 is disposed below the center portion of the center case 30.
The center case 30 is a member that is attached to the game board 1 from the front side. In this case, the center case 30 is enlarged as the image display unit 10 is enlarged. It is arranged to be biased. For this reason, the portion effective as the game area 3 is mainly biased to the left side from the center of the center case 30, and the game ball does not flow to the right side of the center case 30. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and a flow path may be formed on the right side of the center case 30 to allow a game ball to flow.
B.遊技盤の基本構成
次に、遊技盤の基本部分の構成について、図2〜図7を参照して説明する。

B. Next, the basic configuration of the game board will be described with reference to FIGS.
2 is a perspective view of a game board (with a reinforcing member 50 and a center case 30 to be described later attached), and FIG. 3 is an exploded perspective view showing a state in which the reinforcing member 50 and the center case 30 are removed from the game board. . 4A is a perspective view of the reinforcing member 50, FIG. 4B is a front view of the reinforcing member 50, and FIG. 5 is a diagram showing a state in which the reinforcing member 50 is attached from the back side of the game board 1. . FIG. 6 is a view showing a state in which the center case 30 is attached to the game board 1 to which the reinforcing member 50 is attached. FIG. 7A is a front view of the game board 1 to which the reinforcing member 50 is attached, and FIG. 7B is a cross-sectional view taken along the line AA in FIG. Part of the upper side).
図3に示すように、遊技盤1は、全体として四角形状の木製の基板20(いわゆるベニア)よりなる。基板20には、前後方向に貫通する貫通開口部21が、前面から見て遊技盤1の外周(この場合、右側の端縁)から遊技盤面中央側に拡がる切り欠きのような形状に形成されている。この貫通開口部21は、画像表示部10を前面側に望ませるための開口であるとともに、センターケース30をはめ込んで取り付けるための開口でもある。この貫通開口部21の内周面22は、遊技盤1の中央よりの円弧状部分22a(遊技盤1の前後方向から見て円弧状の部分)と、遊技盤1の外周近く(この場合、右側の端縁近く)の水平部分22b(遊技盤1の前後方向から見て水平状の部分)とからなる。なお、水平部分22bは、上下2箇所の位置(円弧状部分22aの両端に続く位置)にある。
貫通開口部21は、上述したような切り欠きの形状であるため、遊技盤1の外周(この場合、右側の端縁)において前後方向に直交する側方(この場合、右方向)に開口しており、これによって遊技盤1の外周部には、基板20の肉が欠落した欠落部23が、貫通開口部21の一部として形成されている。
As shown in FIG. 3, the game board 1 is composed of a rectangular wooden board 20 (so-called veneer) as a whole. A through-opening 21 that penetrates in the front-rear direction is formed in the board 20 in a shape like a notch that extends from the outer periphery of the game board 1 (in this case, the right edge) to the center side of the game board surface. ing. The through-opening 21 is an opening for making the image display unit 10 desired on the front side, and is also an opening for fitting and attaching the center case 30. The inner peripheral surface 22 of the through-opening 21 has an arc-shaped portion 22a from the center of the game board 1 (an arc-shaped portion when viewed from the front-rear direction of the game board 1) and the outer periphery of the game board 1 (in this case, The horizontal portion 22b (near the right edge) is a horizontal portion when viewed from the front-rear direction of the game board 1. In addition, the horizontal part 22b exists in the upper and lower two positions (positions following the both ends of the arc-shaped part 22a).
Since the through opening 21 has the notch shape as described above, the through opening 21 opens to the side (in this case, the right direction) perpendicular to the front-rear direction on the outer periphery (in this case, the right edge). Accordingly, a missing portion 23 in which the meat of the substrate 20 is missing is formed as a part of the through opening 21 on the outer peripheral portion of the game board 1.
また図5及び図7(b)に示すように、遊技盤1(基板20)には、その裏面20aと貫通開口部21の内周面22とで構成される角部に、断面L字状に凹んだ補強部材取付部24が、貫通開口部21の内周に沿って形成されている。この補強部材取付部24は、前述の円弧状部分22aに沿った円弧状補強部材取付部24aと、水平部分22bに沿った水平状補強部材取付部24bと、から構成されている。なお、水平状補強部材取付部24bは、上下2箇所の位置(円弧状補強部材取付部24aの両端に続く位置)にある。
また、遊技盤1の外周面(この場合、前面から見て右側の端面)における欠落部23の上下両側位置には、上記補強部材取付部24と同様に凹んだ補強部材取付部25が形成されている。
As shown in FIGS. 5 and 7B, the gaming board 1 (substrate 20) has an L-shaped cross section at a corner portion formed by the back surface 20a and the inner peripheral surface 22 of the through opening 21. Reinforcing member mounting portions 24 that are recessed are formed along the inner periphery of the through opening 21. The reinforcing member mounting portion 24 includes an arc-shaped reinforcing member mounting portion 24a along the arc-shaped portion 22a and a horizontal reinforcing member mounting portion 24b along the horizontal portion 22b. In addition, the horizontal reinforcing member attaching part 24b is in two upper and lower positions (positions continuing from both ends of the arc-shaped reinforcing member attaching part 24a).
In addition, a recessed reinforcing member mounting portion 25 is formed at both the upper and lower side positions of the missing portion 23 on the outer peripheral surface of the game board 1 (in this case, the right end surface when viewed from the front), similar to the reinforcing member mounting portion 24. ing.
次に、補強部材50について説明する。補強部材50は、貫通開口部21を形成することに伴って脆弱化した遊技盤1の強度を補強する部材であり、十分な強度のある合成樹脂、或いは金属(例えばアルミや鋼)などよりなる。補強部材50は、全体として貫通開口部21の内側にはまり込む枠状のもので、欠落部23にはまり込む欠落支持部51と、補強部材取付部24にはまり込む止着部材取付部52と、貫通開口部21の内周面22に接合(微小な隙間での対向状態含む)する遊技盤補強部53とを有する。ここで、止着部材取付部52と遊技盤補強部53は、欠落支持部51の両端を連結するように円弧状に伸びており、補強部材50は、全体として枠状(ループ状)となっている。   Next, the reinforcing member 50 will be described. The reinforcing member 50 is a member that reinforces the strength of the game board 1 that has become weakened due to the formation of the through-opening 21 and is made of a synthetic resin or metal (for example, aluminum or steel) having sufficient strength. . The reinforcing member 50 has a frame shape that fits inside the through opening 21 as a whole, a missing support portion 51 that fits into the missing portion 23, a fastening member mounting portion 52 that fits into the reinforcing member mounting portion 24, And a game board reinforcing portion 53 that is joined to the inner peripheral surface 22 of the through-opening portion 21 (including a facing state with a minute gap). Here, the fastening member attaching portion 52 and the game board reinforcing portion 53 extend in an arc shape so as to connect both ends of the missing support portion 51, and the reinforcing member 50 has a frame shape (loop shape) as a whole. ing.
欠落支持部51は、図5に示すように、取付状態において、幅方向が遊技盤1の厚さ方向(遊技機の前後方向)となり、長手方向が上下方向となる真っ直ぐな帯板状の部分である。この欠落支持部51は、図6に示すように、取付状態において、前述した欠落部23内にはめ込まれて、この欠落部23の上下両側を、相互に支持するように取り付けられる部分である。この欠落支持部51の上端部と下端部は、取付状態において、補強部材取付部25内にはめ込まれ、欠落支持部51の外表面が基板20の外表面(端面)とほぼ同じ平面上になる(即ち、ほぼ面一(ツライチ)になる)ように構成されている。またこの場合、欠落支持部51の上端部と下端部には、取付用のビス等(止着部材)を挿通するための取付穴51aが形成され、この取付穴51aに挿通されて補強部材取付部25に打ち込まれる(或いはねじ込まれる)このビス等(図示省略)によって、欠落支持部51が遊技盤1(基板20)に固定される。   As shown in FIG. 5, the missing support portion 51 is a straight strip-shaped portion in which the width direction is the thickness direction of the game board 1 (the longitudinal direction of the gaming machine) and the longitudinal direction is the vertical direction in the attached state. It is. As shown in FIG. 6, the missing support portion 51 is a portion that is fitted into the aforementioned missing portion 23 in the attached state and is attached so as to support both the upper and lower sides of the missing portion 23. The upper end portion and the lower end portion of the missing support portion 51 are fitted into the reinforcing member attaching portion 25 in the attached state, and the outer surface of the missing support portion 51 is substantially on the same plane as the outer surface (end surface) of the substrate 20.

The game board reinforcing portion 53 is configured such that the front end surface thereof is substantially flush with the outer surface (front surface) of the substrate 20 in the attached state.
C.センターケースの構成
次に、本例のセンターケース30の構成について、図1〜図2や図6を参照して説明する。
センターケース30は、図1に示すように、表示装置の画像表示部10の前面周囲を囲むように配設される部材であり、前面に開口する凹室31が内部に形成され、この凹室31の奥側には画像表示部10を前面に望ませるための開口部32が形成されている。なお、凹室31の底部は、遊技球の球見せを行うステージ33となっていてもよい。ステージとは、遊技領域を流下する遊技球が流入可能とされ、流入した遊技球が例えば左右に揺れるように転動した後、センターケース外に流下してゆき、場合により始動入賞口11に誘導されるように構成されたものである。
C. Configuration of Center Case Next, the configuration of the center case 30 of this example will be described with reference to FIGS. 1 to 2 and FIG.
As shown in FIG. 1, the center case 30 is a member arranged so as to surround the periphery of the front surface of the image display unit 10 of the display device, and a concave chamber 31 that opens to the front surface is formed inside. An opening 32 for making the image display unit 10 desired on the front surface is formed on the back side of 31. In addition, the bottom part of the concave chamber 31 may be a stage 33 for showing a game ball. The stage means that a game ball flowing down the game area can flow in. The flowed game ball rolls so as to swing, for example, to the left and right, then flows down to the center case, and is guided to the start winning opening 11 depending on circumstances. It is comprised so that it may be.
このセンターケース30の前面側外周には、前述した貫通開口部21よりも外形(中心からの半径)が大きく、その前後方向の厚さ分だけ、遊技盤1を構成する基板20の前面(遊技盤面)よりも前方に突出する前面部34が形成されている。なお、この前面部34の上面左側は、遊技球を画像表示部10の前面側に流下させないように誘導する鎧部となっている。即ち、センターケース30の上に流下した遊技球がこの前面部34の上面(傾斜面)を転がって左方に流下するようになっている。
また、センターケース30における前面部34の裏面側には、取付状態において、前述した貫通開口部21にはめ込まれる後面部35が形成されている。この後面部35は、詳細には、前述した補強部材50の遊技盤補強部53の内側にはめ込まれる。またこの場合、この後面部35の後端側は、遊技盤1の裏面側に突出している(図2参照)。
そして、図6に示すように、このセンターケース30の前面部34の外周の複数箇所には、取付用のビス等を挿通するための取付穴36が形成され、この取付穴36に挿通されて基板20に打ち込まれる(或いはねじ込まれる)このビス等(図示省略)によって、センターケース30が図2に示すように遊技盤1(基板20)に固定される。
The outer periphery on the front side of the center case 30 has an outer shape (radius from the center) larger than the through-opening 21 described above, and the front surface (game) of the board 20 constituting the game board 1 by the thickness in the front-rear direction. A front portion 34 is formed so as to protrude forward from the board surface. Note that the left side of the upper surface of the front surface portion 34 is an armor portion that guides the game ball so as not to flow down to the front surface side of the image display portion 10. That is, the game ball flowing down on the center case 30 rolls on the upper surface (inclined surface) of the front surface portion 34 and flows down to the left.
Further, on the back side of the front portion 34 in the center case 30, a rear surface portion 35 that is fitted into the above-described through opening 21 in the attached state is formed. Specifically, the rear surface portion 35 is fitted inside the game board reinforcing portion 53 of the reinforcing member 50 described above. Further, in this case, the rear end side of the rear surface portion 35 protrudes to the rear surface side of the game board 1 (see FIG. 2).
As shown in FIG. 6, mounting holes 36 for inserting mounting screws and the like are formed at a plurality of locations on the outer periphery of the front portion 34 of the center case 30, and are inserted into the mounting holes 36. The center case 30 is fixed to the game board 1 (substrate 20) as shown in FIG. 2 by these screws (not shown) that are driven into (or screwed into) the substrate 20.
D.遊技の概要
次に、本形態例のパチンコ機で行われる遊技の概要や遊技の流れについて説明する。
まず、遊技開始当初の時点(或は遊技開始前の時点)では、客待ち状態(デモ中)となっており、画像表示部10には客待ち画面(動画又は静止画)が表示される。
そして、ガイドレール2を介して遊技領域3に打込まれた遊技球が、始動入賞口11に入賞すると(即ち、特図の始動入賞があると)、画像表示部10において特図の変動表示が行われて、変動表示ゲームが行われる。
D. Outline of Game Next, an outline of a game performed in the pachinko machine of the present embodiment and a flow of the game will be described.
First, at the beginning of the game (or before the game is started), the customer is waiting (during the demonstration), and the image display unit 10 displays a customer waiting screen (moving image or still image).
When the game ball that is driven into the game area 3 through the guide rail 2 wins the start winning opening 11 (that is, when there is a start winning of the special figure), the image display unit 10 displays the fluctuation of the special figure. And a variable display game is played.
そして、この変動表示ゲームの停止表示態様(変動表示により導出された特図の組合せ)が特定の態様(例えば、「3、3、3」などのゾロ目)であれば、大当りと呼ばれる特典が遊技者に付与される。なお制御上は、例えば始動入賞があったことを条件として、大当り乱数の値が抽出記憶されて、この抽出記憶された乱数値と予め設定された判定値とが判定時に比較判定され、この比較判定結果に基づいて、予め大当りとするか否かが決定され、この決定に応じて上記変動表示ゲームが開始される。また、変動表示ゲームの停止表示態様が特定の態様(例えば、「7、7、7」などのゾロ目)であれば、上記大当りになるとともに、大当り遊技後(後述する開放動作後)に、大当りになる確率を高める制御が行われる状態(確率変動状態)となる。   If the stop display mode of this variable display game (a combination of special figures derived by the variable display) is a specific mode (for example, a doublet such as “3, 3, 3”), a privilege called a big hit is obtained. It is given to the player. In terms of control, for example, on the condition that there has been a start winning, the value of the big hit random number is extracted and stored, and the random number value that has been extracted and stored is compared and determined at the time of determination. Based on the determination result, whether or not to make a big hit is determined in advance, and the variable display game is started in response to this determination. In addition, if the stop display mode of the variable display game is a specific mode (for example, “7, 7, 7”, etc.), it will be a big hit and after a big hit game (after an opening operation to be described later) It becomes a state (probability fluctuation state) in which control for increasing the probability of winning a big hit is performed.
この大当りになると、変動入賞装置12の大入賞口12aが、規定時間(例えば、30秒)を越えない範囲内において、例えば10個入賞までの期間だけ一時的に開放される開放動作が行われる。そしてこの開放動作は、例えば、15ラウンドまで行われる。また、この大当たり状態では、大当たり状態を演出したり大当たりラウンド数などを遊技者に報知するための大当たり画面の表示が、画像表示部10で実行される。   When the big hit is made, an opening operation is performed in which the big winning opening 12a of the variable winning device 12 is temporarily opened for a period of up to ten winnings within a range not exceeding a prescribed time (for example, 30 seconds). . This release operation is performed up to 15 rounds, for example. In this jackpot state, the image display unit 10 displays a jackpot screen for producing the jackpot state and notifying the player of the number of jackpot rounds.
また、上記特図の変動表示ゲーム中又は大当り中に、始動入賞口11にさらに遊技球が入賞したときには、画像表示部10又は別個設けられた特図記憶表示器(図示省略)において特図始動記憶表示が行われてこの場合4個まで記憶され、変動表示ゲーム又は大当りが終了した後に、その記憶(即ち、始動記憶)に基づいて上記特図の変動表示ゲームが繰り返されたり、客待ち状態に戻ったりする。
即ち、変動表示ゲームが大当たりで終了すれば大当たり状態に移行し、変動表示ゲームがはずれで終了し始動記憶があれば再度変動表示ゲームが実行され、変動表示ゲームがはずれで終了し始動記憶がなければ客待ち状態に戻り、大当たりが終了して始動記憶があれば再度変動表示ゲームが実行され、大当たりが終了して始動記憶がなければ客待ち状態に戻る流れとなっている。
Further, when a game ball is further won in the start winning opening 11 during the above-mentioned variable display game of the special figure or during the big hit, the special figure is started in the image display unit 10 or a special figure memory display (not shown) provided separately. The memory display is performed, and in this case, up to four are stored. After the variable display game or jackpot is finished, the variable display game of the above special figure is repeated based on the storage (that is, the start memory), or the customer waiting state Or return.
That is, if the variable display game ends with a big hit, the game shifts to a big hit state, and if the variable display game ends with a start and there is a start memory, the variable display game is executed again, and the variable display game ends with a start and no start memory is stored. If the jackpot ends and the start memory is stored, the variable display game is executed again. If the jackpot ends and there is no start memory, the flow returns to the customer waiting state.
一方、遊技中に、遊技球が普図始動ゲート13を通過したときは、画像表示部10又は別個に設けられた普図表示器(図示省略)上での普図(例えば、一桁の数字)の変動表示による普図の変動表示ゲームが行われる。そして、この変動表示ゲーム結果(停止した普図)が所定の態様(例えば、「7」)であれば、普図当りと呼ばれる遊技価値(特典)が付与される。
この普図当りになると、始動入賞口11の一対の開閉部材11aが逆ハの字に開いた開放状態に、例えば0.5秒程度保持される遊技が行われる。これにより、始動入賞口11に遊技球が入賞し易くなり、その分、特図の変動表示ゲームの実施回数が増えて大当りになる可能性が増す。
On the other hand, when a game ball passes through the general diagram start gate 13 during the game, a general diagram (for example, a one-digit number) on the image display unit 10 or a general diagram display (not shown) provided separately. ), The usual fluctuation display game is performed. And if this variable display game result (stopped usual figure) is a predetermined | prescribed aspect (for example, "7"), the game value (privilege) called per common figure will be provided.
At this time, a game is held in which the pair of opening and closing members 11a of the start winning opening 11 is held in an open state in which the shape of the opening is reversed, for example, for about 0.5 seconds. As a result, it becomes easier for the game ball to win the start winning opening 11, and accordingly, the number of executions of the special display variable display game increases and the possibility of winning a big game increases.
また、上記普図の変動表示ゲーム中に、普図始動ゲート13にさらに遊技球が入賞したときには、画像表示部10又は別個に設けられた普図記憶表示器(図示省略)で普図始動記憶表示が実行されてこの場合4個まで記憶され、普図の変動表示ゲームの終了後に、その記憶に基づいて上記普図の変動表示ゲームが繰り返される。
なお、特図の変動表示は、画像表示部10とは別個に設けた表示器(本特図の表示器)で行うようにし、画像表示部10ではその表示器の変動表示に連動させて特図の変動表示(ダミー表示)を行うようにしてもよい。
Further, during the above-described variable display game, when a game ball is further won at the general chart start gate 13, the general chart start memory is stored in the image display section 10 or a separate map memory display (not shown). The display is executed and up to four are stored in this case. After the usual variable display game is completed, the usual variable display game is repeated based on the memory.
It should be noted that the variation display of the special figure is performed by a display provided separately from the image display unit 10 (the display of this special figure), and the image display unit 10 performs the special display in conjunction with the variation display of the display unit. You may make it perform the fluctuation display (dummy display) of a figure.
以上説明した本例の遊技機によれば、遊技盤1には、前後方向に貫通する貫通開口部21が、遊技盤1の外周(この場合、右側の端縁)から遊技盤面中央側に拡がる切り欠きの形状に形成され、この貫通開口部21には、センターケース30が取り付けられるとともに、この貫通開口部21を形成することに伴って脆弱化した遊技盤の強度を補強する補強部材50が取り付けられている。このため、貫通開口部21を遊技盤1の外周に及ぶまでの大きな面積に拡大し、例えば表示装置の画像表示部10やセンターケース30を従来の限界を超えて大型化させることができる。或いは、表示装置の画像表示部10やセンターケース30を外周側(この場合、右側)に偏らせる配置の自由度が従来の限界を超えて向上する。しかも、遊技盤1の外周が切り欠かれた構成でありながら、補強部材50によって、遊技盤1自体の強度が低下すること、遊技盤1に歪みや捻れが発生することを防止できる。   According to the gaming machine of the present example described above, the through hole 21 penetrating in the front-rear direction of the game board 1 extends from the outer periphery (in this case, the right edge) to the center side of the game board surface. A center case 30 is attached to the through-opening 21 and a reinforcing member 50 that reinforces the strength of the game board that has become weakened by forming the through-opening 21. It is attached. For this reason, the through-opening 21 can be expanded to a large area extending to the outer periphery of the game board 1, and for example, the image display unit 10 and the center case 30 of the display device can be enlarged beyond the conventional limit. Or the freedom degree of the arrangement | positioning which biases the image display part 10 of the display apparatus and the center case 30 to the outer peripheral side (in this case, right side) improves exceeding the conventional limit. Moreover, although the outer periphery of the game board 1 is cut out, the strength of the game board 1 itself can be prevented from being reduced by the reinforcing member 50, and the game board 1 can be prevented from being distorted or twisted.
特に本例によれば、補強部材50が、遊技盤1の外周部に形成された欠落部23を支持する欠落支持部51を有するので、欠落部23に過重な負荷が係ることで例えば遊技盤1が破損してしまうこと、例えば欠落部23の両側を内側に押す上下方向からの外力によって、貫通開口部21の左方側(遊技盤1が切り欠かれていない側)に過重な負荷がかかって、そこに亀裂が生じることなど、を防止することができる。
また本例によれば、遊技盤1の貫通開口部21の内周に沿って、この内周裏面側の角部に断面略L字状に凹んだ補強部材取付部24を形成し、補強部材50には、この補強部材取付部24にはめ込まれて止着部材によって止着される止着部材取付部52を形成し、この止着部材取付部52において補強部材50を遊技盤1に止着した。このため、例えば上下方向の外力によって貫通開口部21が潰れるように遊技盤1が上下方向に歪んだりすること、或いは、前述したように貫通開口部21の左側(遊技盤が切り欠かれていない側)に過重な負荷がかかってこの部分に亀裂が生じてしまったりすることを、特に防止できる。
In particular, according to the present example, the reinforcing member 50 has the missing support portion 51 that supports the missing portion 23 formed on the outer peripheral portion of the game board 1, so that an excessive load is applied to the missing portion 23, for example, the game board 1 is damaged, for example, due to an external force from above and below pushing both sides of the missing portion 23 inward, an excessive load is applied to the left side of the through opening 21 (the side where the game board 1 is not cut away). Therefore, it is possible to prevent cracks from occurring.
Further, according to this example, along the inner periphery of the through-opening portion 21 of the game board 1, the reinforcing member mounting portion 24 that is recessed in a substantially L-shaped cross section is formed at the corner portion on the inner peripheral back surface side. 50, a fastening member mounting portion 52 that is fitted into the reinforcing member mounting portion 24 and fastened by the fastening member is formed, and the reinforcing member 50 is fastened to the game board 1 at the fastening member mounting portion 52. did. For this reason, for example, the gaming board 1 is distorted in the vertical direction so that the through opening 21 is crushed by an external force in the vertical direction, or as described above, the left side of the through opening 21 (the gaming board is not cut out). In particular, it is possible to prevent an excessive load on the side) from cracking in this portion.
また本例によれば、補強部材50に、止着部材取付部52から貫通開口部21の内周面に沿うように遊技盤1の前面側に向かって伸びる遊技盤補強部53を形成することによって、補強部材50が略L字状の断面形状を成す構成とし、この遊技盤補強部53を貫通開口部21の内周面に接合させる構成とした。このため、遊技盤1が上下方向および前後方向(厚さ方向)に歪むこと、及び捻れが発生することを、特に防止することができる。また、補強部材50の肉厚を薄くして小型化及び軽量化を図っても、高い補強効果が得られる。
また本例によれば、補強部材50は、欠落支持部51の両端を、止着部材取付部52と遊技盤補強部53とで連結するように円弧状の枠体で形成される構成とした。このため、貫通開口部21や欠落部23を形成することにより脆弱化した箇所を的確に補強することができ、遊技盤自体の強度が低下すること、遊技盤1に歪みや捻れが発生することを防止できる。
Further, according to this example, the game board reinforcing portion 53 extending from the fastening member attaching portion 52 to the front surface side of the game board 1 along the inner peripheral surface of the through opening 21 is formed on the reinforcing member 50. Thus, the reinforcing member 50 has a substantially L-shaped cross-sectional shape, and the game board reinforcing portion 53 is joined to the inner peripheral surface of the through opening 21. Therefore, it is possible to particularly prevent the gaming board 1 from being distorted in the vertical direction and the front-rear direction (thickness direction) and torsional. Even if the thickness of the reinforcing member 50 is reduced to reduce the size and weight, a high reinforcing effect can be obtained.
Further, according to this example, the reinforcing member 50 is configured to be formed by an arcuate frame so that both ends of the missing support portion 51 are connected by the fastening member attaching portion 52 and the game board reinforcing portion 53. . For this reason, it is possible to accurately reinforce the weakened portion by forming the through opening 21 and the missing portion 23, the strength of the game board itself is reduced, and the game board 1 is distorted and twisted. Can be prevented.
(他の形態例)
次に、他の形態例を図8〜図13によって説明する。なお、第1形態例と同様の構成要素については同符号を使用して重複する説明を省略する。
まず図8は、補強部材の第1変形例(補強部材50a)を示す図であり、図8(a)は補強部材50aの斜視図であり、図8(b)は補強部材50aが取り付けられた貫通開口部内周側部分の断面図(前述の図7(b)と同様の断面図)である。
この補強部材50aは、前述の遊技盤補強部53が無く、欠落支持部51と止着部材取付部52のみからなる。
このように構成すると、補強部材50aの形状が安易なものとなり成形を容易にすることができるとともに、成形に費やすコストを削減することができる。
また、補強部材を貫通開口部21に取り付けると、遊技盤補強部53の厚みの分、センターケース30の外周の寸法を小さくすることを余儀なくされて、センターケース30を大型化させることを規制させられるが、本変形例のように、補強部材を構成することにより、センターケース30の外周の寸法を小さくする必要が無く、センターケース30の大型化を十分に実行することができる。
(Other examples)
Next, another embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. In addition, about the component similar to a 1st form example, the overlapping description is abbreviate | omitted using a same sign.
First, FIG. 8 is a view showing a first modification of the reinforcing member (reinforcing member 50a), FIG. 8 (a) is a perspective view of the reinforcing member 50a, and FIG. 8 (b) is attached with the reinforcing member 50a. FIG. 8 is a cross-sectional view (a cross-sectional view similar to FIG. 7B described above) of the inner peripheral side portion of the through opening.
This reinforcing member 50a does not have the above-mentioned game board reinforcing portion 53, and consists only of the missing support portion 51 and the fastening member attaching portion 52.
If comprised in this way, while the shape of the reinforcement member 50a can become easy and can shape | mold easily, the cost spent on shaping | molding can be reduced.
Further, when the reinforcing member is attached to the through-opening 21, the size of the outer periphery of the center case 30 is forced to be reduced by the thickness of the game board reinforcing portion 53, and the enlargement of the center case 30 is restricted. However, by configuring the reinforcing member as in the present modification, it is not necessary to reduce the size of the outer periphery of the center case 30, and the center case 30 can be sufficiently increased in size.
次に図9は、補強部材の第2変形例(補強部材50b)を示す図であり、図9(a)は補強部材50bの斜視図であり、図9(b)は補強部材50bが取り付けられた貫通開口部内周側部分の断面図(前述の図7(b)と同様の断面図)である。
この補強部材50bは、第1形態例と同様に遊技盤補強部53を有するが、この遊技盤補強部53の幅方向(前後方向)の長さが、第1形態例よりも短い(即ち、遊技盤補強部53の前端が遊技盤1の前面まで到達していない)。
このように構成すると、補強部材50bを成形する場合のコストを削減することができる。
また、補強部材取付部24を断面略L字状に形成したが、これに限らず、例えば階段状に形成することにより、遊技盤補強部53の前端部が補強部材取付部に当接することによって、センターケース30を取り付ける場合に、貫通開口部21に対してセンターケース30を前面側からスライド挿入するのみで取り付けることができ、取付作業を容易にすることができる。
Next, FIG. 9 is a view showing a second modification of the reinforcing member (reinforcing member 50b), FIG. 9 (a) is a perspective view of the reinforcing member 50b, and FIG. 9 (b) is attached to the reinforcing member 50b. It is sectional drawing (sectional drawing similar to above-mentioned FIG.7 (b)) of the obtained through-opening inner peripheral side part.
The reinforcing member 50b has a game board reinforcing portion 53 as in the first embodiment, but the length in the width direction (front-rear direction) of the game board reinforcing portion 53 is shorter than that in the first embodiment (that is, The front end of the game board reinforcing portion 53 does not reach the front surface of the game board 1).
If comprised in this way, the cost at the time of shape | molding the reinforcement member 50b can be reduced.
In addition, the reinforcing member mounting portion 24 is formed in a substantially L-shaped cross section. However, the present invention is not limited to this. For example, by forming the reinforcing member mounting portion 24 in a step shape, the front end portion of the game board reinforcing portion 53 comes into contact with the reinforcing member mounting portion. When the center case 30 is attached, the center case 30 can be attached simply by slidingly inserting it from the front side with respect to the through-opening portion 21, and the attaching operation can be facilitated.
次に図10は、補強部材の第3変形例(補強部材50c)を示す図であり、図10(a)は補強部材50cの斜視図であり、図10(b)は補強部材50cが取り付けられた状態の遊技盤1cの斜視図である。
補強部材50cは、前述した他の補強部材50,50a,50bとは使用方法が異なる。他のものは補強部材自身を取り付けたままの状態でセンターケース30を取り付けるが、この補強部材50cは、製造工程や部品保管期間等で一時的に遊技盤1cに取り付けておくものである。この補強部材50cが第1形態例の補強部材50と異なる点は、図10(a)に示すように、円弧状止着部材取付部52aと円弧状遊技盤補強部53aを持たず、上下の水平状遊技盤補強部53bの間を一体に埋める充実部53cを有する点である。また、本例における遊技盤1cと第1形態例の遊技盤1との違いは、この遊技盤1cが円弧状補強部材取付部24aを持たない点である。
Next, FIG. 10 is a figure which shows the 3rd modification (reinforcement member 50c) of a reinforcement member, FIG.10 (a) is a perspective view of the reinforcement member 50c, FIG.10 (b) is attached to the reinforcement member 50c. It is a perspective view of the game board 1c of the state made.
The reinforcing member 50c is used differently from the other reinforcing members 50, 50a, 50b described above. Others attach the center case 30 with the reinforcing member itself attached, but the reinforcing member 50c is temporarily attached to the game board 1c during the manufacturing process, parts storage period, or the like. As shown in FIG. 10A, the reinforcing member 50c is different from the reinforcing member 50 according to the first embodiment in that it does not have the arcuate fastening member attaching part 52a and the arcuate game board reinforcing part 53a. It is a point which has the substantial part 53c which embeds between the horizontal game board reinforcement parts 53b integrally. The difference between the game board 1c in this example and the game board 1 in the first embodiment is that the game board 1c does not have the arc-shaped reinforcing member mounting portion 24a.
そして補強部材50cは、図10(b)に示すように、遊技盤1cの欠落部23(正確には、前述したように上下に有る水平部分22b、補強部材取付部25、及び水平状補強部材取付部24bによって、上下に挟まれた空間)を埋めるように取り付けられる。
本例の補強部材50cであると、センターケースを取り付けるまでの保管中の遊技盤1cにおいて、湿度や湿気等の要因で歪みや捻れが発生することを防止できる。即ち、貫通開口部21が形成された遊技盤1cを、センターケースを取り付けない状態で放置した場合、湿度や湿気等で遊技盤1Cに歪みや捻れが発生する虞があるが、本例によればそのような問題を解消できる。
なお、補強部材50cが十分高強度な材質よりなる場合、充実部53cが無い構成としてもよい。また逆に、欠落部23だけでなく貫通開口部21の全てを埋めてしまう構成(円弧状部分22a等の内側も埋めてしまう構成)であってもよい。
As shown in FIG. 10 (b), the reinforcing member 50c includes the missing portion 23 of the game board 1c (more precisely, as described above, the horizontal portion 22b, the reinforcing member mounting portion 25, and the horizontal reinforcing member which are vertically located). The mounting portion 24b is attached so as to fill a space between the top and bottom.
With the reinforcing member 50c of this example, it is possible to prevent distortion and twisting due to factors such as humidity and humidity in the game board 1c being stored until the center case is attached. That is, when the game board 1c in which the through-opening 21 is formed is left without the center case attached, there is a risk that the game board 1C may be distorted or twisted due to humidity or humidity. Such a problem can be solved.
In addition, when the reinforcing member 50c is made of a material having a sufficiently high strength, the solid portion 53c may be omitted. Conversely, a configuration in which not only the missing portion 23 but also the entire through opening 21 is filled (a configuration in which the inside of the arcuate portion 22a and the like is also filled) may be employed.
次に、第2形態例を図11及び図12によって説明する。この第2形態例は、ワンタッチ固定部37を有するセンターケース30aを備えたものである。
図11は、本例のセンターケース30aが取り付けられた遊技盤の斜視図である。図12(a)は、補強部材50にセンターケース30aが取り付けられる状態を表した側面図であり、図12(b)は、センターケース30aの裏面側斜視図である。
センターケース30aは、図12(b)に示すように、その裏面部分(後面部35の部分)における左右方向一方側(欠落支持部51の側)の上下2箇所と、左右方向他方側の1箇所の合計3箇所に、ワンタッチ固定部37を有する。ワンタッチ固定部37は、内側に弾性変形可能な可撓性を持つように形成された舌状部分であり、補強部材50の裏面側に引っ掛かる爪37aを有する。
本例によれば、センターケース30aの後面部35を、補強部材50が取り付けられた遊技盤1の貫通開口部21内(補強部材50内)に前面側から押し込むだけで、ワンタッチ固定部37の爪37aが補強部材50の裏面側に引っ掛かり、センターケース30aの取り付け作業が完了する。そのため、ビスやネジ等の止着部材が不用となり、部品点数の削減と取付作業の容易化が図れる。
Next, a second embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. This second embodiment is provided with a center case 30 a having a one-touch fixing portion 37.
FIG. 11 is a perspective view of a game board to which the center case 30a of this example is attached. 12A is a side view showing a state in which the center case 30a is attached to the reinforcing member 50, and FIG. 12B is a rear perspective view of the center case 30a.
As shown in FIG. 12 (b), the center case 30a has two upper and lower positions on one side in the left and right direction (the side of the missing support part 51) and one on the other side in the left and right direction. One touch fixing portions 37 are provided at a total of three locations. The one-touch fixing portion 37 is a tongue-like portion formed so as to be flexible and elastically deformable on the inside, and has a claw 37 a that is caught on the back surface side of the reinforcing member 50.
According to this example, the rear surface portion 35 of the center case 30a is simply pushed from the front side into the through opening 21 (inside the reinforcing member 50) of the game board 1 to which the reinforcing member 50 is attached. The nail | claw 37a is hooked on the back surface side of the reinforcement member 50, and the attachment operation | work of the center case 30a is completed. Therefore, fixing members such as screws and screws are not required, and the number of parts can be reduced and the mounting operation can be facilitated.
次に、第3形態例を図13(a)によって説明する。この第3形態例は、外枠部54(遊技盤被覆部)を有する補強部材50dを備えたものである。図13(a)は、補強部材50dの前面側斜視図である。
本例の補強部材50dは、図13(a)に示すように、遊技盤1の外周面の4辺全部(即ち全周面)を囲む外枠部54を有する。この外枠部54は、幅方向が前後方向とされ、幅寸法が遊技盤1の厚さと略同じであって、前述の欠落支持部51を一体に含むものであり、遊技盤1の外周面に接合されてビス等によって固定される。この場合、外枠部54を含めた遊技盤1の外形を所定の寸法とするためには、遊技盤1を構成する基板20の外周面は、外枠部54の厚さ分だけ中央側に小さくなっていて、基板20の外形はその分小さくなっている必要がある。
本例によれば、遊技盤1の外周面全体を囲む外枠部54を有する補強部材50dが設けられているので、遊技盤1の外周方向からの負荷によって遊技盤1が歪んだり破損したりすることを防止する強度が特に高まる。
Next, a third embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. The third embodiment includes a reinforcing member 50d having an outer frame portion 54 (game board covering portion). FIG. 13A is a front perspective view of the reinforcing member 50d.
As shown in FIG. 13A, the reinforcing member 50d of this example has an outer frame portion 54 that surrounds all four sides (that is, the entire peripheral surface) of the outer peripheral surface of the game board 1. The outer frame portion 54 has a width direction that is the front-rear direction, a width dimension that is substantially the same as the thickness of the game board 1, and includes the above-described missing support portion 51 integrally. And fixed by screws or the like. In this case, in order to set the outer shape of the game board 1 including the outer frame part 54 to a predetermined dimension, the outer peripheral surface of the board 20 constituting the game board 1 is centered by the thickness of the outer frame part 54. The outer shape of the substrate 20 needs to be reduced accordingly.
According to this example, since the reinforcing member 50d having the outer frame portion 54 surrounding the entire outer peripheral surface of the game board 1 is provided, the game board 1 is distorted or damaged by a load from the outer peripheral direction of the game board 1. In particular, the strength to prevent this is increased.
次に、第4形態例を図13(b)によって説明する。この第4形態例は、外枠部54に加えて裏面部55(遊技盤被覆部)を有する補強部材50eを備えたものである。図13(b)は、補強部材50eの前面側斜視図である。
本例の補強部材50eは、図13(b)に示すように、上記外枠部54を有するとともに、裏面部55を有する。裏面部55は、遊技盤1を構成する基板20の裏面20aに接合する板状部分であり、前述した止着部材取付部52を一体に含む。また、裏面部55の外周は、外枠部54と一体に連結され、これら全体として四角形の皿状を成している。但し、遊技盤補強部53の内側は、裏面部55が形成されておらず、この部分はあくまでセンターケース30をはめ込む開口となっている。この場合、裏面部55を含めた遊技盤1の厚さを所定の寸法とするためには、遊技盤1を構成する基板20の厚さは、裏面部55の厚さ分だけ内側に小さくなっていて、基板20の厚さはその分小さくなっている必要がある。
本例によれば、第3形態例の補強部材50dに対して、さらに遊技盤1の裏面側全体を補強する部分(裏面部55)を有する補強部材50eが設けられるので、より一層の補強効果が実現できる。例えば、基板20を落下させても、基板20の損傷を回避できる可能性が相当に高まる。なお、図示省略するが、裏面部55には、大入賞口12aや始動入賞口11等を取り付ける部分にも、センターケース30を設ける部分と同様に、前後に貫通した開口部を設ける必要がある。
Next, a fourth embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. In the fourth embodiment, a reinforcing member 50e having a back surface portion 55 (game board covering portion) in addition to the outer frame portion 54 is provided. FIG. 13B is a front perspective view of the reinforcing member 50e.
As shown in FIG. 13B, the reinforcing member 50 e of this example includes the outer frame portion 54 and a back surface portion 55. The back surface portion 55 is a plate-like portion that is joined to the back surface 20 a of the substrate 20 constituting the game board 1, and integrally includes the above-described fastening member attaching portion 52. Moreover, the outer periphery of the back surface part 55 is integrally connected to the outer frame part 54, and forms a square dish shape as a whole. However, the inner surface of the game board reinforcing portion 53 is not formed with a back surface portion 55, and this portion is an opening into which the center case 30 is fitted. In this case, in order to set the thickness of the game board 1 including the back surface portion 55 to a predetermined dimension, the thickness of the substrate 20 constituting the game board 1 is reduced inward by the thickness of the back surface portion 55. Therefore, the thickness of the substrate 20 needs to be reduced accordingly.
According to this example, since the reinforcing member 50e having a portion (the back surface portion 55) that reinforces the entire back surface side of the game board 1 is further provided with respect to the reinforcing member 50d of the third embodiment, a further reinforcing effect is provided. Can be realized. For example, even if the substrate 20 is dropped, the possibility of avoiding damage to the substrate 20 is considerably increased. Although not shown in the drawing, it is necessary to provide an opening penetrating in the front-rear direction on the back surface portion 55 in the same manner as the portion where the center case 30 is provided in the portion where the large winning opening 12a, the starting winning opening 11 and the like are attached. .
なお、本発明は上述した形態例や変形例に限られず、さらに各種の変形や応用があり得る。
例えば、前述した第1形態例では、いわゆる1種タイプのパチンコ機(始動入賞によって変動表示ゲームを行い、その結果大当りすると大入賞口が開くもの)を例に挙げているが、本発明は、例えばいわゆる2種タイプ(羽モノ)にも適用可能である。
いわゆる2種のパチンコ機とは、センターケース内に変動入賞装置が形成され、この変動入賞装置に入賞した遊技球が、この変動入賞装置内の特別の入賞領域(いわゆるV入賞口)に入賞すると、例えば上記変動入賞装置の開閉部材(羽)がより有利な態様で開放される大当り遊技が実行されるタイプのパチンコ機である。
In addition, this invention is not restricted to the form example and modification which were mentioned above, Furthermore, there can be various deformation | transformation and application.
For example, in the above-described first embodiment, a so-called one-type pachinko machine (a game in which a variable display game is performed by a start winning prize, and as a result, a big winning opening is opened when a big hit is made) is taken as an example. For example, it can be applied to so-called two types (feathers).
In the so-called two types of pachinko machines, a variable winning device is formed in a center case, and a game ball that has won a prize in this variable winning device wins a special winning area (so-called V winning opening) in this variable winning device. For example, this is a pachinko machine of a type in which a jackpot game is executed in which the opening / closing member (wings) of the above variable winning device is opened in a more advantageous manner.
また、前述した第1形態例における補強部材50の止着部材取付部52が、遊技盤の前面側に設けられるような態様もあり得る。この場合、補強部材50を、センターケース30と同じ遊技盤1の前面側から取り付けることができるので、取付作業が楽になる。
また、前述した第1形態例では、センターケース30の取付位置が右側に偏り、遊技盤1の欠落部23が右側に形成された態様となっているが、これに限られず、欠落部23が左側、又は上側、或いは下側に形成された態様(センターケース30の取付位置が左側、又は上側、或いは下側に偏った態様)であってもよい。
また、センターケースには、遊技球を内部に導入するワープ流路が設けられていてもよい。
Further, there may be an aspect in which the fastening member attaching portion 52 of the reinforcing member 50 in the first embodiment described above is provided on the front side of the game board. In this case, since the reinforcing member 50 can be attached from the front side of the same game board 1 as the center case 30, the attachment work becomes easy.
Further, in the first embodiment described above, the mounting position of the center case 30 is biased to the right side, and the missing part 23 of the game board 1 is formed on the right side. An aspect formed on the left side, the upper side, or the lower side (an aspect in which the mounting position of the center case 30 is biased to the left side, the upper side, or the lower side) may be used.
Further, the center case may be provided with a warp flow path for introducing game balls into the center case.
また、今回開示された実施の形態はすべての点で例示であって制限的なものではないと考えられるべきである。本発明の範囲は上記した説明ではなくて特許請求の範囲によって示され、特許請求の範囲と均等の意味及び範囲内でのすべての変更が含まれることが意図される。   In addition, it should be considered that the embodiment disclosed this time is illustrative and not restrictive in all respects. The scope of the present invention is defined by the terms of the claims, rather than the description above, and is intended to include any modifications within the scope and meaning equivalent to the terms of the claims.
